AK-47 is a slightly Sativa leaning hybrid that was created by Simon, the founder of Serious Seeds in Holland. This strain quickly became the seed company’s “Flagship Strain”, winning multiple awards around the world and still maintaining a strong presence in today’s market. AK-47 strain was first created in The Netherlands back in 1992 by crossing four famous landrace varieties originating from Mexico, Thailand, Afghanistan, and Colombia. She was later reworked in 1999 in an effort to increase stability.

According to Serious Seeds, this strain was named in response to its heavy-hitting effects, with stories of seasoned smokers being brought to their knees throughout the coffee shop scene in Amsterdam. Additionally, it should be noted that Serious Seeds have earned a reputation for top-quality genetics and are known for only releasing highly worked and stable lines that have undergone vigorous testing.

TASTE & SMELL –

AK-47 buds deliver a spicy aroma with hints of sandalwood. Her flavor profile is sweet and floral.

EFFECTS – 

This Sativa leaning hybrid is recommended for daytime use, keeping one alert and focused while also enjoying its euphoric effect. Long-lasting cerebral activity and increased sociability are also common with this herb.

MEDICAL USES –

The AK-47 strain offers great therapeutic benefits to people who deal with a lot of stress, suffer from depression or anxiety. It can also help with chronic pain and is widely used by people suffering from insomnia.

GROW INFO – 

AK-47 produces medium-height plants that are best suited for indoor cultivation or equatorial regions if grown outdoors. This impressive hybrid has an indoor flowering period of eight to ten weeks and is ready for harvest by late October when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere. Growers can expect average yields of dark compact buds with red pistils. If you’re looking to buy AK-47 seeds and grow them, it’s best to do it in a location where the smell isn’t an issue, as they have an extremely strong odor. Lastly, it should be noted that AK-47 nugs tend to develop less dense if exposed to overly hot conditions.

SEED AVAILABILITY –

As for people interested in growing AK-47, this strain is fairly easy to grow and seeds can be found readily available for purchase directly from Serious Seeds’ website in regular, feminized and auto form.
